    Here is what Service Alberta says: https://open.alberta.ca/dataset/b1c13245-86dd-41a1-b540-4cc40b58bb04/resource/1a592f59-f6cc-4935-9847-2505aa648006/download/sa-condominium-documents-fact-sheet.pdf

    While this might be out of date, MOST of what is here is relevant.  I have written to Service Alberta to obtain clarification as there no obvious new document.

    Unfortunately, at this time your alternatives are limited:

    1) formally write a letter and send the condominium manager the Service Alberta fact sheet

    2) consider a complaint to Real Estate Council of Alberta, which licences condominium managers, as your condominium manager doesn’t know what they are talking about.

    3) have a lawyer write a letter to the Board of Directors to nudge them on your behalf (some boards listen to lawyers better than owners).

    4) go to court – expensive, slow and ineffective in our experience.

    That is why Condo Owners Forum Society of Alberta has been pushing the government of Alberta to initiate the dispute resolution tribunal authorized by the Condominium Property Act of 2014.
